In the Murder of Dr. H. C. Speneer of
C;aincHrille Put A. A. Hampton
la a Bart Pottltlon
The Gainesville Sun of the 25th says:
"To Charles Pinkoson, chief of the
Gainesville police force, is due the
credit of fathoming the mystery which
has for nearly ten months shielded the
parties guilty of the foul murder of
Dr. H. C. Spencer. Dr. Spencer, it will
be remembered, was called from his
home on North Evans street on the
night of Monday, February 26th, the
messenger requesting the physician to
go to Gainey's still, three miles dis distant
tant distant on the Seaboard Air Line, toward
Fairbanks. That was the last seen of
him until the following Thursday
morning, when Sheriff Ramsey and a
posse, after a search lasting two days
and nights, came upon his body, lying
face upward, on the banks of a brook
nearly two miles from the still, where
the doctor's automobile was found
standing the day after his disappear disappearance."
ance." disappearance." The Sun goes on to tell how Marshal
Pinkoson, working on one little clue
and another, finally rounded up Thomas.
Smith, a negro, in whose, possession
was Dr. Spencer's watch' and some
other small articles that once belonged
to the physician. Smith confessed that
he decoyed Dr. Spencer into the power
of his murderer, who, according to
Smith, was one A. A. Hampton, a
young white man, a woods rider for J.
R..Gainey. Hampton is seriously ill at
his home in Gainesville and his physi physician
cian physician says he cannot recover. He doesn't
act like he was guilty, and some peo people
ple people believe Smith is laying the crime
on him to shield the real criminal.
In his confession Smith said:
"On Monday night, the first of the
year, I was coming from Finger's still.
Mr. Hampton, who worked at 95 still,
overtook me near the edge of town. He
said: 'Hello, old man, where are you
going?' I said, 'I am going home. I
said: 'Why?' He said: 'I want you to
go and stopped, and looked like
he was not going to say any more. He
hummed and hawed on it twice; then
he said: 'I want you to go to Dr.
Spencer's house and tell him that I
say to come, and come at once that
my wife was sick. He then pulled out
a quarter and'gave me.

"I left him standing in the road. I
went to Dr. Speencer's house and told
him that Mr. Hampton's wife at
Gainey's still was very sick, and to
come right at once. He said: 'All
right, I will be out in a few minutes.'
I helped him get the car out. We got
in and went to TTe still. We stopped in
front of the big gate to the .still and
got out. Mr. Hampton came from the

direction of the boss man's house. He
spoke to Dr. Spencer, and we started
off east.
"We went down the big road. We
came to lots of water; they would go
around the water, I would generally
go through the water. I went with
them to get to ride back with the doc doctor.
tor. doctor. The doctor said if he had known
there was so much water he would
have brought his car. He spoke about
the water and the distance several
times complaining about his foot
hurting. Mr. Hampton had a .gun on
his shoulder and a little dog with him.
We got to a branch. I broke a stick
and gave it to the doctor to help him
over the foot-log. The doctor, crossed
first, me next, Mr. Hampton last. The
doctor had trouble in crossing. Just
as the last man stepped from the log
the gun fired. I threw up both hands
and started to holler. Mr. Hampton
said, 'You had better not say any anything.'

one side. I then took the doctor's
watch, his pocket knife and a little
book. Mr.' Hampton first looked all
around and then stooped over Dr.

TV Ti

In the hurry of making up the

Christmas edition, somewhat or an ex-

alteration was made in the adver

tisement of the Munroe & Chambllss

Bank. It was stated that the resources
of that institution were six million

dollars.

It la a well known fact that when

one has been looking at things for a
long time, he will see some things
that are not there, and won't see some

thines that are.

The man who read proof on the ad

vertisement had been reading proofs

and lines, of type for hours and days
and niehts till the lines and letters

were running together, and he wouldn't

have known his own name from oen-

eral Kuropatkin's. Also, he had been!

ininer business with the Munroe &

Chambllss Bank for a long time, and

it always seemea 10 aim iw

the money In the world. It didn't

seem Jn the least improbable that It

fcad six million dollars, or sixty mil

lion.

Also, the ad. setter made another

mistake that we can never stand for.j
nor forgive ourselves for overlooking,

for he left off the name of Z. C. Cham

bllss, the first vice president. Now
this bank without the name of Zack

Chambllss among its officers and on
Its board of directors, would not be
natural, it would be like Christmas

without anv Santa Clans.

The corrected advertisement ap

pears in today's-issue. Tt wouldn't be

a bad Idea to keep that six million line
standing. At the rate the Munroe &

Chambllss Bank has grown from a lit

tle check cashing counter In 1897 to

one of the staunchest financial Institu

tions of Central Florida an institution

that was handinsr out coin In the 1907

panic when banks all over the country
were giving clearing house certificates

It Isn't going to be so very long be

fore Its resources are six million. It
seems like It does about lx times the
work of a million now. It has been one
of the most nowerful factors In bring

ing about the solid prosperity that
Ocala and Marlon county now enjoys,
and will soon begin its seventeenth

vear of usefulness. Read the adver

tisement, share in the bank's good

wishes and heed Its advice.

THE WAILES CLAIM

T. T. MUNROE,
President.

Z C. CHAMBLLSS,
J. M. THOMAS,
Vice-Presidents.

A. E. GERIG,
Cashier.

The following from the Tampa

Times suDDorts the stand the Star

took a number of years ago in regard

to this claim:

In the news column of the Times
on yesterday was published an account

of the action of the United states su

preme court in dismissing the writ of
error in the case of Wailes against the

comptroller, with an outline of the his

tory of this famous claim, and the in

famous action of our state legislature
in postponing, and in effect refusing.

Its' payment.
The history of this claim and of the
refusal of the state to pay it con constitute
stitute constitute a chapter In the history of
Florida that should bring the blush of
shame to the cheeks of everyone who
loves his state and desires to feel
proud of her record.
There was a plain and simple con contract
tract contract entered into with this claimant
by the state, through her executive, to
perform certain services for -a certain
consideration. We believe that the
fact of the making of the contract has
never been denied; nor have the terms
thereof been -disputed.
It Is undoubtedly true also that the
services specified were performed
but that the state has dishonorably re refused
fused refused to pay the consideration named
in the contract.
The legislature at one time passed
an act providing for the payment to
Wailes of the pittance of $25,000 in
full settlement, but he, quite justifia justifiably,
bly, justifiably, Tefused to accept a stone when-he
asked of them bread. As the only
method remaining fo- securing the
rights of which he had so long been
deprived he brought the proceeding
that has just, by means of a technical technicality,
ity, technicality, been dismissed. There has been no
"decision -upon the merits. There is
nothing to preventi the making of the
proper party defendant and pushing

the case to a final decision, which will

- adjudicate the justice of the matter

All honest persons acquainted with

the circumstances of the case must
earnestly wish that when a decision
ubon the merits is reached it will be

asrainst the state and in favor of the

claimant; though It will be a source of
mortification to all Floridians that
their state should be forced by a su superior

that should have been performed free

Strong; Argument by the Senator for

the A censed Iron Workers
Indianapolis, Ind., Dec. 24. United
States Senator Kern argued in behalf

of the forty defendants at the "dyna

mite conspiracy" trial yesterday. He

appealed to the jurors to remember

when preparing their verdict that most
of the defendants came from distant
parts of the country.
"Plain workingmen," he said, "some
of them uneducated ironworkers, tak taken
en taken from their homes, hundreds or
thousands of miles away and made to
face a strange court with a district
attorney hurl'ng harsh and abusive
language at them is it any wonder
that some of them became confused?
Is it any -wonder that some of them
couldn't remember details of letters
they wrote five years ago?
"Some of these men did not know
what they were charged with. They

came to me and asked me what it was

all about. I had to explain to them
that they were not charged "with dyna dynamiting,
miting, dynamiting, but only with transporting ex explosives
plosives explosives illegally. Tou jurors can't
convict these men of the crimes with
which they are charged. You can't
convict them of causing explosions but
only with, carrying explosives on pas passenger
senger passenger trains or conspiracy to violate

i the federal laws."

Attacking Ortie E. McManigal, the
confessed dynamiter, as the "greatest
criminal of his time," Senator Kern
said the government's charges were
based largely upon what McManigal
had said.
"This McManigal came here with
brazen face and related his crimes
with an air of triumph," said the sen senator.

The patient was Mr. C. T. Gibson, a

CHAPTER XXIV.
Tra White Messenger,
spite of liivens protest Stuart
returned to New York oa the
4
ti.-st traiu tLe iuorniug after tbe
s oai-hius party reached the
house.
"Stay a week longer," the little man
urrod. "and I'll go with you. We'll go
together, all of us. in my car. I'm
getting worse here every day. I've
got to get Jnek to my doctors in New
York."
"I'm sorry, Cal." he answered quick quick-ly.
ly. quick-ly. "hut 1 must leave at once." j
Nan allowed him to go without an
effort to change his decision. A strange
calm had come over her. She drove
to the station with him in silence. He
began -to wonder what it meant.
As he stepped from the machine she
extended her hand, with a tender
smile, and said in low tones:
"Until we meet again."
lie pressed it gently and was gone.
He reached New York thoroughly
exhausted and blue, but the sight of
Harriet seated on the stoop of the old
home by the square wa'tching a crowd
of children play brought a smile back
to his haggard face.
"They've come to honor me with
their good wishes on my voyage." she
said.
"What voyage?" he asked in sur surprise.
prise. surprise. "Oh. you didn't know. I've an en engagement
gagement engagement to sing on the continent
this summer,
day you left.
The news came
Isn't that fine? I
the

next week."
A sudden idea struck him.
"Let me go with you. girlie?"
"Oh, Jim. if you only would. I'd be
in heaven!"
"I will!" he said with decision.
"Y'on've booked your passage?"
"Yes, but I'll change it to suit you."
lie found business which required a
week and booked his passage with
narriet on a Cunarder which sailed
in ten days. A week later Nan and
Bivens returned to their New York
house. The papers were full of stories
of his failing health.
Two days after her arrival Nan tele telephoned
phoned telephoned to Stuart.
"You must come up to see Cal to tonight."
night." tonight." she said earnestly. "He is ask asking
ing asking for you.''
"Is hp really dangerously ill?" Stuart
interrupted.
"It's far more seiious than the pajjer
suspect. You'll come?"
"Yes. early tomorrow morning. I've
an important engagement tonight that
will keep nie until 12 o'clock. I'm sail
ing for Europe day after tomorrow."
A sudden click at the other end and
he was cut oB". His experienced ear
told him it was not an accident.
It was Just dawn when Stuart's tele telephone
phone telephone rang and he leaped from bed.
startled at the unusual call.
"Well, well." he cried in quick, im impatient
patient impatient tones, "who Is it? What is the
matter?"
"For heaven's sake come at once.
Cal was taken dangerously ill at 2
o'clock. The doctors have been with
him every moment. He doesn't get any
better. He keeps calling for you."
"I'll be there in half an hour three three-quarters
quarters three-quarters at the most."
"Thank you," she gasped, and hung
up her receiver. x
Stuart's cab whirled uptown through
the rivers of humanity pouring down to
begin again the round of another day.
In all the hurrying thousands not one
knew or cared a straw whether the
man of millions In his silent palace on
the drive lived or died.
The house was evidently in hopeless
confusion. Servants wandered in ev every
ery every direction without order. Doctor aft after
er after doctor passed in and out, and the
sickening odor of medicines filled the
air. A group of newspaper reporters
stood at the-foot of the grand stairway.
Nan stood shivering at the head of
the stairs, pale, disheveled, her dark
eyes wide and staring with a new ex expression
pression expression of terror in their depths.
"How is he. Nan?"
"Worse," she stammered through
chattering teeth. "The doctors say he
can't possibly live. He has been call calling
ing calling for me for the last hour. I can't
-go!"
"Why?"
"I'm afraid!"
lie took her hand. It was cold and
he felt a tremor run through her body
at his touch.
"Come, come. Nan, you're not a silly
child. I'm ashamed of you. If Cal is
calling, go to him at once. ou must
see him."
Shivering in silence she led Stuart
to the door of Bivens' room and fled
to her own.
On a magnificent bed of gleaming
ebony inlaid with rows of opals, thou thousands
sands thousands of opals. Stuart found the little
shriveled form. The swarthy face was
white and drawn, the hard thin lips
fallen back from two rows of smooth
teeth in pitiful, fevered weakness. The
shifting eyes caught sight of Stuart.
"It's awfully good of you to come
up here so soon," he began feebly.
"I've some plans I want you to carry
out for me right away. You see I
never thought before of the world as
a place where there were so many
men and women sick and suffering suffering-thousands
thousands suffering-thousands and tens and hundreds of
thousands. These doctors say that
every night in New York alone there
are half a million people sick or bend bending
ing bending over the beds of loved ones who
are suffering, and two hundred die
every day."
lie paused for breath, and the black
eyes stared at his friend.
